Library Director Patty Anderson will show patrons what goes on behind the front desk and how new books make their way to the shelves. Come see the library’s state-of-the-art computer lab and sign up for a free library program.
“I look forward to introducing the patrons to the staff at the library, who make coming to the library such a great experience. They take great pride in what they do,” commented Anderson.
On Tuesday, April 13th, the library will recognize the fine work the entire library staff does by acknowledging National Library Workers Day. This event will be held in conjunction with the American Library Association-Allied Professional Association’s national celebration. This is a time to honor the contributions of all library workers, including librarians, support staff and others who make library services possible.
The library staff are responsible for a wide variety of services that patrons come to expect from their libraries. They are in charge of more than checking out books; library staff catalog and classify books, DVDs and CDs; they place holds on materials and make sure they get to and from the library via an interlibrary loan network. They also update the library website and keep the systems running. The adult services librarians handle thousands of reference questions annually and they schedule and book many exciting programs for patrons.
During National Library Week, the library is hosting a program on the History of the Jersey Shore at 7 p.m. on April 15. Kevin Woyce, author and photographer, will take us on a tour of the Jersey Shore and explain why there is a huge elephant-shaped building in Margate and how the town Loveladies got its name.
The following week the library is hosting two poetry readings. Rita Corrado will read poems from her book My Heart, My Mind and My Pen Combined on Monday, April 19 at 7 p.m. And on April 22, local poet Marilyn Feitel, will read noteworthy poems of well-known poets, also at 7 p.m. Patrons can sign up online or call the library to register for both programs.
